You’ve heard it over and over again, like a religious chant – the african girl child is at risk and someone needs to do something about it (I may or may not have said it this month). But today, Elizabeth Kperrun-Eremie, Founder of Lizzie’s Creations, invites you to join her in doing something about it.

Lizzie’s Creations, creators of Afrotalez, an educational apps for kids aged 2-10, and one of the 10 finalists in She Leads Africa 2014 Entrepreneur Showcase, will kick off a new project called Choices on 27 July, 2015 (that’s today).

Choices is a visual novel, which aims to create awareness of specific issues African women face every day. Players will be in control of Cecilia, a teenage orphan who has to take care of her siblings alone on the streets on Lagos. The company believes the app will make for a very entertaining experience while subtly educating young women about the various “choices” they have, no matter the situation. Some issues to be addressed in the app will range from child rights to sexual health, teenage pregnancy to drug use and so on.

Here’s Elizabeth Kperrun-Eremie explaining the project in her own words, and having fun while at it. And here’s an exclusive demo video and trailer of a scenario from the app.

The first phase of the Choices project is to get funds via crowdfunding on Indiegogo. And that’s where you come in. Lizzie’s Creations needs you to help the African girl child. And that journey starts now.
